Auction Purchase & Open House Spring Break

I hope everyone is doing well and looking forward to
a fun weekend.
The Open House party will be going on Spring break for a
few weeks.   I’ll still be posting and visiting you, the party will
just be on a short hiatus.  I need a little breather and the time
to catch up on reading my favorite blogs, returning emails and
finishing some long overdue projects.  I’ll be returning soon with
more beautiful homes to share and a fabulous giveaway!
A couple of weeks ago I went to an auction liquidating the
inventory of a very expensive home decor shop.  I was the high bidder
on two beautiful Italian pottery pieces.  They still had the original price
 of $395.00 each on them!  You all know I am  rather very frugal and
there was no way I would pay anywhere near that amount.
I filled one of the urns with seashells and a white sea fan from my Etsy
shop.  I know it is hard to tell in the photo but this piece is huge and weighs
a ton.  I can barely lift it even when empty.
The other urn is currently sitting empty awaiting some pretty plants.  We are
headed to the nursery tomorrow so I’ll be back soon to show you the other urn.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  1. What a great find….it looks so pretty filled with shells!!! Can't wait to see the other piece too! Have a fun on your spring break :o)

  2. Love that urn filled with shells and other sea life. I love the combination of those items together. Hope you have a nice break. I know you must need it.

  3. Oh I absolutely LOVE that urn – it is remarkable with shells on your table – perfect in every way.

    Hope you got a decent bargain – wow no wonder they went out of business, $400 price tag? YIKES!

    Can't wait to see what you do with the other one!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. LOVE your new urn and when you look at the print behind it you can see how big it really is!! enjoy your break!! And I'm SO jealous you can buy plants already! Here in upstate NY we can't yet 🙁 Usually not until May!

  5. Hi Sherry,
    Don't you just love a great bargain like that? What a beautiful piece and I like the shells with it…so perfect for the season.
    Have a wonderful Spring break and I'll link up when you return but I'll visit as you find time to keep us up to date.
